Defaulting GPSBabel's Mapsource output to version 3 had the nice trait
that the files basically worked for just about everyone. They had
the bad trait that they violated the principle of least suprise for
geocachers (which are a major part of our customer base) because v3
does't have geocaching icons.
I've just changed the default to v5. It will be this way in the next
beta and release.
The deal maker was Lil Devil's coherent explanation that updates are
free and anybody that wouldn't/couldn't download an updated Mapsource
probably wouldn't/couldn't download GPSBabel. If someone really does
use the older version, they can specify the old formats.
